The development, previously known as East Float, has now officially been named as Redbridge Quay due to its proximity to the famous red bridge in the northeast corner of Wirral docks. It follows Peel L&P taking over the whole development from Urban Splash earlier in the year.
The waterside development is surrounded by beautiful Grade II listed grain warehouses, a new pocket park, green landscaping and new public realm, including dockside walkways.
The first phase, now complete, consists of 30 new homes – a mix of the award winning ‘Town House’ and ‘Row House’ modular homes, designed by Liverpool architects Shedkm.
Each individual home has been precision engineered using Modern Methods of Construction (MMC). Peer reviewed data reveals that the fully electric ‘Town House’ home is over 50% more energy efficient than the average new build home, exceeding all carbon reduction targets. Town House has been shown to emit over 20% less carbon than the aspirational target for best practice and has been created using sustainable timber, which emits over 70% less carbon in its construction process than the average building, and over 50% less carbon than the best practice benchmark.
Richard Mawdsley, Peel L&P’s director of development for Wirral Waters, said: “Our Redbridge Quay residential development is bringing the very latest in sustainable housing design and innovation to Wirral Waters.
“These first new homes will be surrounded by pocket parks, trees and public realm along the water’s edge, transforming Wirral docks in to place of calm and green suburban living.
“This development will also be a significant contribution to the shortfall in local housing, well away from any green belt land, and will ensure the delivery of new homes for families, individuals and couples in a highly contemporary, sustainable and accessible location. We are looking forward to moving forward with the second phase of Redbridge Quay in 2023.”
